Panini America Previews 2012 Black Friday Cracked Ice Autograph Inserts (Gallery)
Here it is the Monday of Black Friday week and a few of us inside Panini Ameirca HQ just suffered something of a panic attack when we realized that there are still so many previews of the set’s impending greatness that we’ve yet to show.
Indeed, despite the staggering nature of the must-have cards — base, RCs, memorabilia, autographs, parallels, you name it — that we’ve shown so far, there’s still much left to see before the 2012 Black Friday promotion kicks off in earnest later this week.
So today, we provide a massive gallery showcasing a beautiful selection of Cracked Ice autograph inserts sure to provide highlights aplenty in hobby shops across the country later this week. Featuring current superstars and rookies as well as some of the greatest legends of all time, the 2012 Black Friday autograph checklist is a stunning tribute to sports royalty. Gordie Howe. Mark Messier. Robert Griffin III. Andrew Luck. Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. They’re all here — and so are many other collecting cornerstones. You can see exactly what we mean in the gallery below.
Stay tuned to The Knight’s Lance tomorrow for the master list of hobby shops participating in Black Friday and for additional sneak peeks at the product itself.
